An Elle of a party

Awards ceremony brought out Hollywood stars

It’s a big girls’ club here, and I feel left out,” complained Adam Shankman, who was there to host the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards presented by Calvin Klein Beauty. “I’ve already had sex with most of your boyfriends. What else do I have to do to get in?”

Winning an Oscar might help, as the ballroom at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills was teeming with trophy holders on Monday night as Elle magazine honored their favorite female stars. Jodie Foster chatted with Kathryn Bigelow in one corner, Hilary Swank got friendly with Diane Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow blew kisses at Sofia Coppola, and Goldie Hawn held court front and center. After all, her daughter Kate Hudson is the magazine’s November cover girl and the final honoree of the very long evening.

Diane Kruger, Kerry Washington and Jessica Chastain joined Foster, Swank, Keaton, Paltrow, Coppola and Hudson in taking home a trophy in a competition that, as Shankman joked, is “all about whether (Elle editor-in-chief) Robbie Myers likes you!”

Whatever the reason, the glittery night brought out stars of all ages, from 12-year-old Elle Fanning to Emma Roberts, Annette Bening and Viola Davis. Even a few famous guys ventured into the female fray, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Harrison Ford and Quentin Tarantino, who never shut up for a second, gabbing loudly with Kruger as the other awardees accepted their prizes.
